“Turn your mess up into a dress up.”

-Rebecca Bonner, art teacher

An art teacher at Mcauliffe Elementary School in Highland Village, Texas, Rebecca Bonner is going viral from a dress she decorated with hundreds of drawings made by 580 of her students. Her daughter, Charlece Lake, posted the photos on Twitter, and it reached over 100,000 likes in no time!

In an interview with Good Morning America, Bonner said, “I got fabric markers and sharpies, laid out my dress for two weeks, and just let them doodle on it.” Bonner mentioned that the purpose of this project was to get her kids excited about art. When she found out the photos her daughter posted were going viral, she was in awe!

I’m not worried about being famous or anything like that but I do think it’s great to promote the arts because elementary art is not everywhere. I think it’s really important for kids to have that outlet, to have that place to create, and that freedom to create.”

Donner’s daughter Charlece, who posted the viral photos on Twitter, has been inspired by her mother’s passion for teaching art and is currently enrolled in college to become a teacher herself, one day.
